ebirdregioninfo()to also provide information of hotspots (thanks @gbabineau, #72).
ebirdhistorical()which provides historic observations on a date at a region or hotspot (thanks @gbabineau, #74).
This version switches all functions over the the new eBird API, given that the one previously used by
rebird will be retired on October 1st. As such, many of the functions in
rebird have changed, and the previous versions of the package will not work correctly.
ebirdtaxonomy()) require users to provide an API key, which is linked to your eBird user account. See the README.md or the package vignette for more info on how to set up a key. Alternatively, the key can be provided as an argument in all functions.
rebirdfunctions, now use species codes rather than scientific names for species-specific requests.
locas its first argument instead of
regionas it allows for both regions and hotspots to be specified.
ebirdregioncheck()have been deprecated and will be removed in future releases. These functions still work in the updated API, but might cease to do so in the near future.
ebirdregion()has the same functionality as the first two functions, while
ebirdregioninfo()provides a more informative interface than
ebirdregioncheck, which provide historical frequency of observation data and check whether a region is valid under eBird, respectively.
